Policy-makers in Sydney are exploring how the concept of the '30 minute city' can help to reduce the amount of time people need to travel and increase the number of opportunities for everyone. This requires an understanding of what the ‘30 minute city’ could mean for Sydney. To assist, Arup has brought together city scale datasets to understand the number of jobs, residents, universities and hospitals that can be accessed within a 30 minute trip departing from any location in Sydney. The information has been compiled into a model that calculates travel time based on various modes of transport including walking, cycling, public transport and driving.
Policymakers now have the valuable insights to shape the quality of access in Sydney.
